Allow timezone configuration for watermark in the WD Connector for IDB

Jacques Swanepoel 5 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Workday updated by anonymous 5 years ago 2

Workday have confirmed that they cannot change their timezone in Workday to match the UTC timezone we use in our Import Changes requests. Given our client is located across 12 different timezones, this means that we miss a lot of the (utc-x) requests. Would it be possible to add a timezone offset to the Connector so that we can change this to match the Workday set timezones? This will allow for a consistent set of changes to be detected

Workaround added to the connector, the attribute is timezoneOffset using xml encoded timespan (see duration examples here for details on the value, e.g. -PT13H for offsetting 13 hours prior to UTC now).

Under review

Hi Jacques,


The connector only ever deals with UTC, so any fault would be with Workday ignoring the timezone offset indicator (bad design). If this is the case there might be a number of places where we'd need to allow for this, so I'll need to discuss further so that we find all the places where the code needs updating.


Thanks.
